(RepublicanInformer.com)- Remember when “Believe All Women” was a thing? Well, if liberal magazine Mother Jones is anything to go by, the left is over that idea now that they have elected an accused sex abuser to the highest office in the land.
The magazine recently decided to include Tara Reade, the former Senate staffer who accused Joe Biden of sexually assaulting her in 1993, in the “Top Ten Lunatics of 2020.” The distasteful and wicked decision to attack Reade was blasted on social media, prompting the magazine to walk back its decision and remove Reade from the list.
Accusations made by Reade about then-Senator Joe Biden shocked the world during the presidential campaign. They were so disturbing that even Senator Kamala Harris, who ultimately became his VP pick, said that she believed Reade.
Yes, Kamala Harris believes that Joe Biden is a sex abuser.
Kevin Drum, the author of the piece that labeled Reade a “lunatic” for experiencing sexual assault, was widely condemned and a tweet from an account named “We Believe Tara Reade” quickly went viral.
“Hey @MotherJones, how did @kdrum’s inclusion of Tara Reade on a list of lunatics make it past your editorial board?” the account asked.
Hey @MotherJones, how did @kdrum’s inclusion of Tara Reade on a list of lunatics make it past your editorial board? When did flagrant sexism and misogyny become part of your brand? It’s disgusting to see a news outlet disparage survivors like this. pic.twitter.com/vEFsXx9j3t

“When did flagrant sexism and misogyny become part of your brand? It’s disgusting to see a news outlet disparage survivors like this,” they added.
And if you’re curious whether Drum is apologetic, just check his Twitter feed. You won’t see any posts apologizing for attacking Reade in such a vile and dehumanizing way.
Reade hit out at the magazine, too, calling the experience a “misogynistic roller coaster.”
“Surviving abuse is hard and sharing it harder,” she said. “But they will not take my dignity.”
The misogynistic roller coaster via @MotherJones what is painful as a survivor besides the name calling is the triggering of verbal abuse by @kdrum that comes up from the past by a toxic males. Surviving abuse is hard and sharing it harder. But they will not take my dignity. pic.twitter.com/m0aBexRCDB
